Emblems? What do they do?

5 posts in this topic

Simples, really, The emblems, like the 'Luck of the Oirish' that you can slap on the side of your tank. Do they actually do anything or are they purely decorative? Anyone know?

Cheers

Purely decorative, WG was going to implement something akin to WoWS with the emblems system but scrapped it because a shit load of people got mad

Absolutely not a god damn thing. They wanted them to increase camo value, cause we all know that a big ass tank with a 1 by 1 emblem on the side is so much harder to see!

They provide an excellent point of reference for my aiming reticle when I'm trying to ammo rack you . . .

Emblems and Inscriptions were redesigned and proposed in V10.0 (http://worldoftanks.com/en/news/general-news/tank-customization-10-0/) to give a variety of bonuses.  Some applied to the whole crew, some applied to individual crew members, and some only worked under specific circumstances or conditions. The mechanism still shows in the UI, and IIRC they were costly (in gold) and if purchased for credits the monthly maintenance fee was enormous.

The player base felt this was a very "pay to win" feature that further divided the "haves" and "have nots" as well as providing mature accounts even more advantages over new players.

Less of an issue was customization; where there was likely a "standard best" build, that limited player customization options to those emblems and inscriptions that got the job done rather than what they preferred not to mention those players who dont like that sort of stuff on the tanks in the first place...
